Trump arrives as United States win Presidents Cup

Trump arrives as United States win Presidents Cup”

Here is what some of the members of the winning team had to say following their 19-11 triumph that concluded at Liberty National. "That's why I agreed to come onto the team [as an assistant this year]".

Hope remains for the worldwide side thanks to Branden Grace and Louis Oosthuizen, who secured a hard-fought 2&1 victory over Daniel Berger and Brooks Koepka.

He's the first sitting USA president to present the trophy at the closing ceremony, where he handed U.S captain Steve Stricker the Presidents Cup.

For years, the Europeans used their tight-knit bonding as teammates as their strength.

For the worldwide players, this day was as stress-free as it was for the Americans.

"They're just great players", said Stricker on leading the hosts to victory.

After a dominant three days, the Americans need to win just one of this morning's (Singapore time) 12 singles matches to win the biennial match-play showdown in epic style.

"It was a fun ride, " Stricker said. "They continued it right through this tournament here".

The Presidents Cup is the store-brand Ryder Cup, pitting an American team of twelve golfers against a team of twelve golfers from non-European countries of the world.

"We definitely gave it our best going up against great competition. It's going to be tough to be part of because it's so deep and so strong".

Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas then delivered a stinging 3 & 2 victory over the worldwide powerhouse duo of Louis Oosthuizen and Branden Grace.

That point became moot in the fourth match of the day when American Daniel Berger defeated global competitor Si Woo Kim 2 and 1. "They have found a system and they are winning", said Scott. "I think for the most part, we've been very focused on our own matches and our own score".

Added Leishman: "It's a disappointing week for us, getting our butts handed to us like that".

"It was a bit of a slaughtering this week", Scott said.

Anybody would have had a hard time with the Americans, but when they got out of the gates slowly, the Internationals seized their opportunity. You probably do! But that idea likely doesn't involve the Presidents Cup, as now constituted. They served notice this week to the global team, and to the Europeans, too.

"I've got to bring something on the golf course". We've gotten to really know each other a lot more than I think is usual. The only exception was US assistant captain Tiger Woods, who seemed to keep his distance from the president until the latter came up to him, vigorously shaking hands and clasping him on the shoulder. I'm exhausted. It's a long process. "I don't know how to explain it, but it was like playing golf with my buddies".

"You start to kind of look forward and wonder where this momentum could take us". Trump was on hand for several hours as the United States team, captained by Steve Stricker, finished off the formality of beating the global team for the 10th time in 12 tries.

However, the award for "Match of the Day" goes to the third of the day, Kevin Kisner and Phil Mickelson versus the global team of Jason Day and Marc Leishman. "How does it feel to be 0-5 in singles", Johnson asked Spieth. Hideki Matsuyama and Adam Hadwin built a 2-up lead over the formidable duo of Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed, but settled for a half a point after Spieth and Reed came charging back.

Obama, after shaking hundreds of hands and having a long chat with USA assistant captain Tiger Woods, departed after the third match started but Bush and Clinton stayed until the end.

Instead, the clinching match fell to Berger, who had told Sky Sports in an interview Saturday, "Our goal from the minute we got here was to crush them as bad as we can".
